About The Briars Resort

The Briars is a heritage Ontario lakeside resort, a refuge of relaxation and genuine hospitality amidst acres of lush lawns, gardens and towering trees. The surrounding woodlands, rivers and Lake Simcoe shoreline provide habitat for a variety of wildlife, an icon of Ontario's Green Belt.

This very special property includes a championship Scottish woodlands golf course, a full spa and excellent recreation programming. The Briars is recognized for its historic and natural significance by the Ontario Heritage Foundation and the Arboretum at the University of Guelph.

The Briars' captivating marriage of traditional country inn warmth with extensive resort facilities provides such a sense of a private retreat that our guests consider us "Another World", just an hour from Toronto.

The Sibbald family and the Briars staff invite you to visit the resort at any time of year, to relax and restore yourself, and rekindle your relationships with family and friends.
